GT Bicycles' Timeline Museum - Sea Otter 2018
yup spot on... If GT got the GEO right, it would have been the game changer that Zerode became...

@YouHadMeAtDrugs: Yup, brake boost was used to keep the frames from flexing while the V-brakes engaged the rims. It actually worked pretty good.

Man those were the good old days where V-brakes with boost arch was the shit... My first full Suspension was the RTS, snapped that then upgraded to the LTS, snapped that then upgraded to the STS, then I-drive 1.0, then IT-1, then Ruckus 1.0, then Carbon Fury... etc... You get the trend. I was on GT for at least 15 years and I still feel that the IT-1 and Carbon Fury were some of the best technological designs every launched by GT.

Pinkbike Poll: Does the Current Method of Mountain Bike Classification Make Sense?
Although I understand every category, I think there could be a simpler way to explain it as (Soulrebel) prefaced: Since most technology trickles down from some form of racing or competition, those bikes are very dedicated to a performance outcome. We should have a Competition (RACE) vs None Competition (None RACE) separation. XC = race / Trail = not race Enduro = race / AM = not race DH = race / Freeride = not race *Yes, Freeride has become a competition (Rampage) but on DH bikes. But what about: BMX & 4x = race / Dirt jump & Street = not race Slope Style = competition / Park = None competition **Yes, there is contest in DJ, Street, & Park but mainly using a bike evolved from its racing/competition designed brother At the end of the day we have all of these categories out of demand and it will continue to have blurred lines but we could definitely use some level of simplification and standardization in this ever evolving industry... Just my thoughts.

Pivot's New Carbon and Alloy Enduro Bikes - First Look
@pivotcycles: Hi Chris, I am a huge fan of the previous Firebird model having owned a couple as well as other DW suspension bikes. But I am curious as to why you got away from the floating shock design? From all of my experience on DW or VPP designs, the Firebirds floating shock design was the best feeling suspension of the bunch. Thanks

Roger dat, I think the older Firebird with the floating shock had the best suspension design in their line based on my experience of owning several different models from them....

Pivot's Shuttle eMTB - First Look
@Thustlewhumber: Yes, and Strava in and of itself is pretty lame. If you want to crush it against other people then show up at a race and do so. First of all, strava isn't very accurate and it's not under the same conditions as a competitive race. Yet, Stava people have the nerve to criticize other technologies. Put your phone away and be a true rider, one with nature. In fact, don't even drive to your next ride, go straight from your house and be the hardcore rider you speak of...
